The Weekender: July 4-6


Happy Fourth of July weekend! Although Tropical Storm Arthur has threatened our celebration, the festivities will go on! Here are our top picks for a wonderful holiday weekend.

Island Time. Hop the ferry over to George’s Island this Saturday for the Pretty Things Beer Tasting & Music Fest. Try seasonal favorites from the Somerville brewery while relaxing in the summer sun as local bands, The Sea The Sea and Amy Correia with Kimon Kirk, play. Stay awhile and explore the island’s tunnels!

Explore Boston with the Harborfest. From interesting talks and walks to a scavenger hunt, there are many ways to explore Boston and learn its history with Boston Harborfest this weekend. For more information and to see a full list of weekend event’s, please visit the Boston Harborfest website.

Summer Jazz. Berklee College of Music’s jazz trio, 3 Sudacas, will be performing a free concert on Spectacle Island this Sunday.

Free Fun Fridays. Dozens of museums and cultural institutions are offering free admission on Fridays this summer. Since the weather forecast is looking rather rainy on this year’s July 4, consider visiting the Heritage Museum & Gardens, Edward Gorey House, and others.
